Disappointed with this documentary/film
on 27 May 2017
Disappointed with this documentary/film. Seems it was hyped up, and there appeared to be many inconsistencies. To me the whole documentary appeared 'staged' and this would have been okay if there had been some central message eg the importance of transhumance in rural areas. The goat giving birth was tethered and therefore couldn't nuture/lick her kid after being born - a couple of takes later, the tether was loose. When the goats and kids went out to pasture, it looks like the kid that got stuck in the ditch had its legs tethered (staged so that it couldn't get out and keep up with the herd). The truck ramming the goat pen was improbable. The charcoal burning was interesting - but the whole docu-movie was unsatisfactory and a missed opportunity.
